Zoya Bubbly nail polish collection

You will excuse me for just now getting this post up, won’t you? Back when I reviewed Zoya’s Tickled collection, I had a mission to get this press sample of Bubbly up soon after and yeah well…life. You know how it goes, right? *cue the violins* I think you’ll forgive me once you see the sweetness that is this collection…

Zoya Bubbly Nail polish

And you’ll have to forgive me for going font crazy because I am learning my way around PhotoShop and I basically want to do fun ‘tings to ALL THE PICTURES. How sad is it that I’ve been blogging for over 7 freaking years and I am just now playing in Photoshop? Sad stuff, girls. Saaad stuff.

Zoya Bubbly nail polish collection

But file this collection under things that make me happy. If you are a fan of a holographic jelly fizzy polish, this collection may be up your alley. They do really well when worn alone but I’ve found that they really shine when layered on top of a creme polish.

Zoya Binx up close

It’s an interesting formula that Zoya is giving us and I think it is more than fitting for summer.

Zoya Harper

Harper is a cotton candy pink with cold shimmer and when worn alone, I think she looks okay. I can’t wait to see how this baby acts aboard a baby pink.

Zoya Stassi

Staasi is a citron green with all kinds of emerald loveliness. I am also amazed at how well this one does on its own.

Zoya Alma

Alma is a warm golden peach that I think will look beautiful on the nails of women of all complexions.

Zoya Muse

Muse is a blue raspberry with a touch of gold. And the best thing about this baby? She doesn’t give you Smurf fingers! It’s a sweet blue that I can’t wait to try over a navy blue. Giiiirl, how hot would that be?

Zoya Jesy

Jesy is a firey coral orange and I usually have my issue with corals but this is just sweet and divine.

Zoya Binx

Binx is a spicy orchid purple and this shade is my favorite of the bunch. I find that it is the one shade that really does spectacular on its own.

Zoya Bubbly

Not a bad bunch, huh? Overall, I think it’s a fantastic collection and I can appreciate how Zoya always keeps us on our toes. We never know what they are going to do when it comes to nail polish formulas and colors. And trust me when I say it is hard to surprise nail polish aficionados. We think we’ve seen it all but Zoya continues to push the envelope and I’m so glad that they do. I find the formula on these to be superb and I didn’t have any application issues with them. I applied 2 coats for each polish but I’m thinking you can get away with applying 3 without any problems. And of course they will all look smashing when layered over your favorite creme nail polish. Yassss Zoya. Yasss!

You can get this collection at Zoya.com for $9 a bottle or $54 for the entire collection.

So what do you think? A fan of this formula or not so much?

Zoya Tickled Collection

Sweet and creamy and made for Summer, Zoya’s Tickled collection was sent to me with the Bubbly collection. These shades are all bright and will absolutely satisfy the color fanatics of the world.

Zoya Tickled

See what I’m talkin’ about?

Zoya Rocha

Rocha is a red cream with warm undertones. It has a good amount of orange in it and while it isn’t wildly unique, it’s a fun mix between red and orange.

Zoya

Rooney is a magenta pink cream but really I find it to be notch up from baby pink. I’ve never been a fan of pink nail polishes and I really want to hate this one but it is kinda growing on me. I’ve got to find a pretty top coat to layer over it.

Zoya Tilda

Tilda is a fantastic warm mantis green that looks more like a Granny Smith apple cream. Really, it is far more warmer and has a touch of white in it. It’s a great green and not one that I think Zoya has in their green lineup.

Zoya Wendy

Oh Wendy. I’m thinking this juicy summer melon will be a hot pick among many summer pedicure pickers. It’s a pretty average shade and is like a mature bubblegum but I’m sure this girl will look great on the toes.

Zoya Ling

Ling is a beautiful vibrant royal blue. I’m a lover of blues and this is perfect and fitting for those who want to take baby steps into wearing blues.

Zoya Kirtridge

Kitridge is the only polish that I had to apply 3 coats of. If Wendy is a mature bubblegum pink, Kitridge is the teenage bubblegum pink.

And then altogether in harmony.


Zoya Tickled collection

I’m a fan of this collection but really it’s Kitridge and Tilda that rock my socks. Formula, as always, was perfect and it seems like with every collection they release, Zoya just gets better and better on the formula front. Are any of these shades are callin’ ya? You can get the entire collection at Zoya.com for $54 for all 6 polishes for $9 a bottle.

Zoya Naturel collection

My girl Leandra from Nail Polish Therapy is still helping me in the swatching department of the press samples of polishes that I received many moons ago. Today we’re showcasing the ever so simple yet stunning Naturel collection from Zoya.

Zoya Naturel collection

This collection hit the scenes in December of 2013  and uh…let’s not talk about how late I am in getting this review up, okay? Naturel is still making waves in the nail polish community. Because hello…creams never get old. Never.


Zoya Chantal
Described as a French vanilla cream, Chantal’s creaminess makes me lust after ice cream in the worst way. She applies with ease and really that shade is perfect for nail polish lovers of all complexions.


Zoya Normani

Normani is a sable mauve cream that I found to almost look like OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques. While not as dirty mop water’ish, Normani is the kind of shade that you would maaaaaybe try. Or  you’d run away from it. That’s it.

Zoya Taylor
Taylor could definitely be the younger sister of Chantal. This light toffee cream has a bit more warmth and brown in it but it is just as striking as her older sister.

Zoya Odette
Odette is one notch away from being considered a Grandma shade in my book but this sultry orchid maroon makes the cut. Really, she’s actually very classy and flattering on just about anyone.

Zoya Rue
Oh Rue. Could you have been named after one of my favorite characters in The Hunger Games? Perhaps? This boudoir blush cream isn’t as exciting or groundbreaking as the other colors but her one perk is that she applies with such ease and coverage.

Zoya Brigitte
Okay, if Odette was a notch away from being the Grandma shade, Brigitte is all the way there, honey. And not in a bad way. I find this bombshell mauve cream to be very retro and dare I say it…funky? It works.

You won’t find me saying anything bad about a collection full of creams. I think Zoya did an amazing job in terms of uniqueness and stellar formula. Chantal and Normani may very well be the must haves of this collection. You can snag each bottle for $8/bottle or the entire collection for $54 at Zoya.com.

Zoya Awaken collection

My girl Leandra over at Nail Polish Therapy did the honors of reviewing these samples of Zoya’s Awaken line. I am soooo here for her gorgeous nails and she has really done this collection quite the honor.

Zoya Awaken collection

Sweet, dainty and girly, this collection just yells whimsical. You’ve got your perfect subtle shades that are ideal for Spring, but they also make for great summer pedicures, as well.


Zoya Dot

Dot is a pink petal cream and it really reminds me of cotton candy. It’s one of those shades that you maaaay be able to deal with even if you aren’t a fan of the color pink.

Zoya Cole

Cole is a peach whisper cream and by far my absolute favorite of the bunch. It’s so hard to find a true and authentic orange sherbet shade that applies like buttah. Cole is IT!

Zoya Hudson

Hudson is described as a purple orchid metallic with a silver shimmer and it’s really one of those unexpected colors in a collection. I loooove a purple cream, but this purple metallic goodness here is just glorious.

Zoya Dillion

Dillion is a green mint metallic and is, of course, a sibling of Hudson. She’s just as fabulous and shimmery.

Zoya Rebel

Rebel is a blue sky metallic that is quite reminiscent of shimmery ocean water.

Zoya Brooklyn

Brooklyn is a white-gold shimmer metallic and how refreshing is it to have a yellow that isn’t a hot and streaky mess?

Applied like dreams, the kids of the Awaken collection are such a great fit in Zoya’s lineup. Also included is Monet. This multi-colored, cellophane holographic special effect topper is an additional $10 which is nice but I’m thinking you could probably go without it. Each bottle in the Awaken collection retails for $9 a pop and you can get the entire collection for $54 from Zoya.com.

Which shade is your fave?

Zoya Magical Pixie collection

Spring is here and while I know a great deal of the U.S. is still dealing with frigid temps, this Floridian barely got any dealings with snow this past Winter. I was in NYC in February and that slushy snow stuff was enough to drive me back to my palm trees and blue skies. Zoya’s Magical Pixie collection is technically a Spring collection, but its sparkle and luster looks very much like a Winter collection.

Zoya Magical Pixie collection

Or is it just me?

Zoya Magical Pixie

Either way, I was excited to get the chance to review this stunning collection.

Zoya Lux nail polish

Lux is a rose quartz sparkle textured PixieDust with mega hex iridescent particles. I always said that if I’m going to wear a pink nail polish, it is going to be a stunning one like this babe. Tough to apply? Yes. Worth the effort? Definitely.

Zoya Cosmo

Cosmo is a silver crystal sparkle with the same mega hex iridescent particles as Lux. I think I like this one of the 3 because the rainbow’ness (c’mon…let’s pretend that’s a word) really looks well with the silver polish.

Zoya Vega nail polish

Vega is the blue opal version of Lux and Cosmo and comes off just as stunning as the other two. This shade comes off very winter-y to me.

I did some mild photo adjusting to these to help the colors shine as the original photos didn’t have them looking like how they look in real life. They are indeed extremely sparkly. This collections reminds me a lot of a collection that Wet ‘n Wild had some years back. The sparkle keeps them from looking “matte” and as you would imagine, these are pretty rough to the touch which can make removal tricky. Otherwise, I think they are fantastic and fun to play with for those who need some extra sparkle in their nail polish collection.

Each polish goes for $10 but you can get the entire collection for $30.

Are you into the chunky sparkle look?

Zoya Satins nail polish collection

I’m glad I swatched this collection before  all of my nails went and broke on me. Figures. When I make very little effort to take care of my nails, they do just fine. But the second I want polish them on a regular, they all break on me. Totally a first world problem, I know, but it sucks. This collection, however…doesn’t suck and I was so grateful to get a press sample of it.

Zoya Satins Collection

Very appropriate shades for a winter collection, right?

Zoya Claudine

Claudine is a striking dark meteorite gray metallic. Applying this baby was a dream and I achieved full opacity with only one coat. And it’s such a stunning color. I’ve seen gray metallics before but never one that has such a beautiful and shimmery finish.

Zoya Channing

Channing is a coppery red metallic and something tells me that one of my favorite fashion bloggers, Channing in the City, would love this shade. When I think of Thanksgiving and fall, a shade like this comes to mind. Very appropriate for the season!

Zoya Mason

Mason is an exciting red violet or “Fandango Pink” metallic. Don’t ask me what Fandango Pink is. I’m far too lazy to Google it, but honey, what a beautiful shade! I don’t get too excited over pinks but this is the kind of pink that I can roll with.

Zoya Maria-Luisa

Maria-Luisa is a pretty gold cellophane accent topper. Of course, this shade is intended to be layered over another nail polish color. I applied it over Mason and it’s just so pretty!

Zoya Giovanna

Giovanna totally photographed somewhat off (my camera sucks at really capturing teal-ish shades) but this emerald green metallic is deep, rich and awesome. It also stains the nails so be sure to use a base with this one.

Zoya Neve

Neve is a sapphire blue metallic and at one glance it looks blue and at another, it looks like a sparkling purple. Such a pretty shade. My mother, being the purple lover that she is, would looooove this one.

 

Another winner from Zoya. I don’t have any complaints. Each nail polish applied beautifully and I’m loving the unexpected shades. You can snag this nail polish collection from Zoya.com for $48 for the entire collection or $8 for each polish. Check out my review of the Cashmere collection, the other collection that launched with the Satins collection.

Zoya Cashmeres Collection

It’s about to be a Zoya marathon around here for the next few weeks. After this collection, I have 2 more collections to review and I’m not even mad about it. Zoya has been doing some pretty awesome thangs in the nail polish world and I’m just honored to be able to get the chance to share it with y’all. I got this collection to review and Cashmeres is just well…

Zoya Cashmeres

…very lovely indeed.

Zoya Flynn

Flynn is a lush camel brown nude cream and well er uh…I’m just not a fan of how these kind of shades look me. They look like “too light” foundation. In fact, I think the only way I could successfully pull this off is with some glitter thrown on top. And said glitter needs to be a reallllly pretty glitter.

Zoya Sailor

Sailor is a classic dark navy cream. I can’t even begin to explain how much I loooove this polish. Yes, there are plenty of navy blues out there but Zoya does creams beautifully and Sailor is just sheer perfection.

Zoya Pepper

Pepper is a brick red cream and dang, this is a gorgeous. Yeah yeah, I know if you’ve seen one red you’ve seen them all but I love the smokiness of this one. It’s stunning!

Zoya Hunter

Hunter is a dark sea green cream and no one does luscious greens like Zoya. This is such a rich and luscious green.

Zoya Louise

Louise is a rich chocolate brown and it’s another color that I’m on the fence about. I definitely like it more than Flynn but I never know if brown polishes flatter me or make my nails look dirty.

Zoya Livingston

Livingston is a lush autumn red that is THEE perfect red for the season. I’ve got plenty of reds but this one is just perfect.

Bravo Zoya! What a stunning and season-appropriate collection. I love the uniqueness of the shades Louise and Flynn. But for my not so adventurous nail polish wearers, there’s Pepper and Livingston. You can snag the entire collection from Zoya.com for $48 or you can get each polish for $8 a pop.

Which polishes are your faves?
